June 16: San Mateo Pride
ECR members whoop it up onstage at San Mateo Pride. Rich Reel was our caller. We also had a booth where we spread the word about our Fun Nights to potential dancers.
June 15: Fun with Eric
ECR welcomed guest caller Eric Henerlau to our June Fun Night. Along with square dance basics, Eric taught some easy line dances like the Electric Slide ("If you've been to a wedding, you've done this.") and the "Wild Wild West" barn dance (an ECR fave).
We'll be holding future Fun Nights on the third Friday of each month (July 20, August 17, September 21, October 19) featuring a variety of callers and dance styles to keep things fresh and interesting.

June 13: Welcome, New Grads!
ECR welcomed its 2018 "Green" Blast Class graduates with diplomas and speechifying, and cake. Caller Michael Levy led the group in silly square dance games. And did we mention cake?
June 3: Santa Cruz Pride
ECR kicks off Pride month at the Santa Cruz Pride Parade. Caller Rich Reel and banner carriers James Thompson and Susan Grieger show off our new club banner before we dance our way down Pacific Avenue to cheering crowds.
June 1: Pass the Ocean, Please!
Kurt Gollhardt was the caller at our June potluck and dance. Plenty of good food and decorations, and all levels of dancing to Kurt's collection of ocean-themed music, with a grand finale of "Octopus's Garden".
